Edition notes: The text has been added editorially: the only indication of text in the source is the heading 'Psalm. 67th. S.M.'. The order of the first and third parts has been reversed compared to the source: the first piece in the book has a comment 'N.B. The principal Air is next to the Base'. The second treble part from bar 6 to bar 13 (given here on the alto stave) is printed at the same pitch as given here in the topmost part in the source (otherwise treated as the tenor part in this edition): the alto part itself is notated in the source in the treble clef an octave above sounding pitch.
